"Carmen"



Work by Joana Vasconcelos at Ajuda National Palace, Lisbon

By the way, have you seen her latest work, a giant bow composed of hundreds of "J'Adore" bottles, at the Dior exhibit in Paris?

Beautiful fixture. I went to look at the bow. That had to be very expensive to make unless she got the bottles donated. Wow.

Dina said...

I like! It looks strangely appropriate for this setting.

I would not think that room needs any additional adornment.

@Dave: This is not permanent, it's just part of an exhibition at the palace.

I've been looking and looking at this, trying to understand the title. Then I saw pair after pair of brilliant earrings. So hail to Carmen: si je t'aime, prend garde a toi.

Congratulations on Portugal's advancement to the World Cup.

I like those little drops of color on the lamp. What a lovely old building. :)

PS: I am living in Berlin now and I have a new blog - check my profile. We are going to Portugal to play golf (what else) so there won't be time for sightseeing. But hopefully I can still get a few (photo) shots in! :)

I find her work very interesting. I missed J'Adore. It would have been nice to see one of her installations in person.
